Tokyo: India pugilists Shiva Thapa (63kg) and Pooja Rani (75kg) bagged gold at the Olympic Test Event for Boxing while Ashish (69kg) settled for silver as India ended their campaign on a great note.

Four-time Asian medallist Thapa outclassed Kazakhstan's national champion and Asian bronze winner Sanatali Toltayev 5-0 to claim gold.

Former Asian Games bronze medallist Rani also ensured another gold for India as she defeated Australia's Caitlin Parker.

However, Ashish (69kg), went down to Japan's Sewon Okazawa in the final to end his campaign with a silver medal.

Earlier on Wednesday, former junior world champion Nikhat Zareen (51kg), Simranjeet Kaur (60kg), Sumit Sangwan (91kg) and Vahlimpuia (75kg) lost their semi-final bouts to end with bronze.
